multiple arguments for mocked functions....

If you look into the PHPUnit documentation (http://www.phpunit.de/manual/3.3/en/test-doubles.html#test-doubles.mock-objects ) you’ll see some nice examples but non of them shows how to translate a function with multiple arguments into a mock-assumption. Within the examples you’ll find: $observer->expects($this->once())->method('update') ->with($this->equalTo('something')); So what if the “update” function has two arguments, pretty easy: $observer->expects($this->once())->method('update') ->with($this->equalTo('something'), $this->equalTo('something else')); I guess Sebastian though that that there’s no need for documentation if something is so obvious :(

Firefox 3.7 sneak....

I just stumbled over some Firefox 3.7 screens. It seems that the mozilla developers plan/brainstormed to change same smallers parts: Embracing Glass: Toolbar and Tabs using Glass. Buttons translucent and slightly glossy to meld with the toolbar. Raised 3D lookachieve tactile “feel”. Page Button: Connect the Page button to the left side of the tab area. Directly connected to the Page. Tools/Bookmark Bar: Connecting the Tools button to the side of the Window to emphasize the fact that it is used for customizing and changing the UI. ... Read more

Fancy Wolfram Alpha queries ....

I’ve just got a tiny url from a friend ( click ) and this shows that Wolfram Alpha can also plot complex functions in a very nice way. All this is pretty amazing and I just found out that there are ton’s of examples how they process data ~ either by plotting mathematical things, calculation chemical stuff, doing string-analyses or plotting fractals :) Btw - google looses on all of these queries :P (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

Project Code Rush

A pretty interesting documentation about the phase of the open source release of Mozilla in 1999. They just published this documentation (which aired 2000) because there’s no Copyright for it. I find it interesting because you can see why Open Source can succeed and you can also see why the Internet-Bubble was growing. It’s interesting how these developers live and how they work. It’s scary that some of them found it normal to stay in their office for the entire week just to get rid of some bugs. ... Read more
